2021 Summer Adults

NOTE: Depending on instructor or subject, individual lessons may be conducted in-person per Hochstein’s reopening plan; lessons may also take place online. To find out more about the technical requirements for online instruction, click here.


Come to Hochstein to grow and create and be inspired! Whether age 20 or 90, beginner or advanced, dabbler or experienced professional, you can find a place at Hochstein! Hochstein offers the chance for adults to work collaboratively with other adults, and also the opportunity to work intergenerationally with students of all ages—the choice is yours! 

Hochstein welcomes adult students of all experience levels and descriptions—individual lessons are available to adult beginners, those returning to an instrument that they took as a child, and those who have continued to play through adulthood. We have faculty members with many years of experience and interest in working with adult students.
